MATTHEW 6:6_But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet…
There are times when it is appropriate to talk with your loved one publicly. Those conversations are not from the depth of the heart.
Private conversations build love. The more private the conversation, the stronger the love. The more private the conversation, the better you get to know each other. The more trust builds. Falling in love with the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit follows the same path.
For true love to develop between people you need to be of the appropriate age. You also need to be in the appropriate circumstances in life. It requires a man and a woman – not a boy and a girl.
For true love to develop with the Savior the younger you get to know Him, the better. I Timothy 4:12 (KJV), “Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.”
Make a covenant with God in your youth. Ezekiel 16:60 (KJV), “Nevertheless I will remember my covenant with thee in the days of thy youth, and I will establish unto thee an everlasting covenant.”
God remembers the covenants of your youth.
King of Kings, I praise You that I am not too young to make a covenant of love with You. In the powerful name of Jesus, Amen.
Christ loves children and youth—He loves me!
